    Do you believe that success should be rated more by one's happiness or by one's financial situation?

    I definitely believe the answer is happiness.  But I wouldn't mind being successfully happy AND rich someday.

    I believe that success should be rated more by one's happiness then financial situation. I wrote a hub on a similar topic as well.
    Financial situation does not always carry success because one rich person may not happy in true sense. A happy person may be successful in the other way round.
    If success is both accompanied by financial freedom and true happiness then that is the most ideal situation for me. (True happiness will sure vary person to person.)
    very good question.

    To the outside world your success is judged by your materialistic affluence, but in your inner self it is your happiness that matters, as money cannot buy happiness.

    Defiantly financial, you can't rate happiness also money brings happiness (at least for me).

    A combination of both. If someone has a great financial situation, it is nice but if they are not happy then they are not fully successful. If someone is happy and only has a shady financial situation, then they are partially successful but probably not to their full extent.

    It depends of what kind of success you're talking about. A sad rich person can be successful in business, money-making, etc. A happy not so rich person can be successful in having friends, a loved one, family, steady job, etc.

    But generally, I would say happiness. Because if you are happy, you are much more likely to be motivated to achieve bigger things in life.

    Definitely happiness!  Joy and health are paramount to all riches. Financial abundance certainly brings choices and freedom of a certain kind, but inner peace comes from happiness and joy.
